Yankees | Injury updates

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte (back) will play catch Thursday, May 23, and he'll do some long toss after that, followed by a bullpen and a simulated game. It's unclear if Pettitte will come off the disabled list when eligible next week. 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) and 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) each received six at-bats in a simulated game Wednesday. 3B Alex Rodriguez (hip) had the day off from workouts. RP Joba Chamberlain (oblique) threw 13 pitches and is expected to have another rehab outing before coming off the DL. SP Ivan Nova (triceps) threw a light side session, but the team won't rush him back.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't an imminent return from any of these players, and the Yankees are being cautious with all of them since their low-cost replacements have picked up the slack and carried them so far.
